Our Mission Statement: The Western Pacific Property
Inspection Institute is committed to providing those
wishing to become professional inspectors of residential
real estate and commercial properties, with access to
quality education despite work and personal
commitments or living in a location which precludes
attendance in classroom based programs.
We provide participants with the flexibility to take courses
from anywhere in the Province of BC or beyond, while still
continuing to work and live in their home communities.
Q: How long does it take? A: Because of the CPBC
requirements, it typically takes 6 months to complete the
regular program. Two - 3 hour evening webinars per week
plus one three day "lab" session in Vernon.
Q: Accelerated? A: This option doubles the webinar
sesions to four - 3 hour sessions per week and reduces
the lengtth of the program to about 3 months.
Q: How much does it cost? A: Tuition is $3950 plus $250
Application Fee and $300 Lab Fee for a total cost of $4500
(paid in 2 installments). Textbooks are an extra ($200 -
$300 in total). This fee structure is guaranteed to the end
of 2019 and subject to review for 2020.
Q: Lab? A: There is a 3 day "hands on" session with a
Licensed Inspector in houses here in Vernon. CPBC
counts this as "education", not as "field training".
Q: Why does "made in BC" matter? A: Building
Performance is different in BC compared to, say Ontario
or Florida, because of issues like climate and seismic
activity, etc. Our licensing requirements are also unique.
